Rehabilitation is the best cure for injuries suffered by the human
body. To prevent rehabilitation, you must take proper care and
precaution when it comes to your body.
For those who
are serious about their weight training or workouts, one way to prevent
injury is by understanding how much weight your body can handle or
Why Lift Heavy and Risk Injury?
why is it important to lift heavy and risk injury? Scientifically
speaking, if you want your body to grow bigger and become stronger, you
must push it periodically. This is why men often wonder and talk about
their one rep max in the gym, in other words, the maximum amount of
weight they can lift for one repetition.
serious body builders attempt their one rep max for various exercises at
least once every couple weeks to send their muscle fibers a signal that
they need to grow bigger and stronger to handle the weight being put on
them. Muscles have memory, and they use this memory when they rebuild
during the time you rest in between your workouts.
How Much Weight Should You Lift?
of us is different, and therefore the weight our bodies can handle is
also different. Our workout intensity is also affected significantly by
the environment in which we train. For example, working out in Denver,
Colorado is not the same as working out in New York City because the
oxygen levels in the air are different due to Denver’s elevation above
sea level. Differences in nature clearly impact our conditioning.
addition to natural externalities, there are several other variables as
well that impact our ability and the way we train. Some of these
include our diet, rest patterns, the time of the day we train, air
It is not uncommon for heavy
weight lifters to hurt themselves while working out because they
overestimate how much they can lift. Such workout injuries are not only
painful, but often take several weeks, months and even years to recover
Preventing Gym Injuries With a 1 Rep Max Calculator
way to prevent such injury is by using a one rep max calculator when
working out. A 1 rep max calculator is a program that helps you
determine the maximum weight your body can handle in the gym for any
given exercise at any given point in time.The one rep max calculator is
accurate because it is based on a scientific formula, for which you
provide the inputs based on your workout patterns. Because you provide
the inputs, the one rep max calculator is able to provide a customized
response for each unique individual.
Most 1 rep max calculators can only be found online and therefore a bit inconvenient to use on the go. Recently however, the 1 rep max calculator has become available on iTunes for you to download, take and use with you at the gym or wherever you go.
technology to understand and use science to your advantage is a great
way to take precaution when working out, and 1 rep max calculators are a
great way to do that for serious weight trainers.
